'Until our paths cross again' - Laura Langman hints at retirement in cryptic social media post

Silver Ferns great Laura Langman has hinted at retirement from competitive netball, with a cryptic post on Instagram.

Langman, 31, left Australian side Sunshine Coast Lightning earlier this week, amid speculation she could return to the Silver Ferns environment ahead of next year's Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast.

Taking to social media, the 141-Test veteran hinted that she may be walking away from netball altogether.

"No words will ever explain how grateful I am for and to all the Players, Coaches, Physios, SnC's, Nutritionists, Surgeons, Podiatrists, Massage and Pilates, Clubs, Netball Enthusiasts, Training buddies, Friends, Family, Sponsors and my ragey @adrian_pooley23 for embracing my ‘lauzieness’ from the grassroots up," Langman wrote.

"It has been a fairy tale full to the brim of memories, terrible photos, laughs and learnings. Until our paths cross again."

Langman represented New Zealand for 11 years, attending three World Cups, and is widely regarded as one of the best players to have ever graced the Silver Ferns dress.
